smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a couple of key questions. does the president of the united states lay out any timetable for his effort to resume peace process? i expect the answer to that is no. he will say there's more foundation building. what does president abbas say about his willingness to come back to the table? right now he says he will only come back if israel meets certain conditions, chief among them, stop iping settlement construction in the west bank. construction is under way. and that construction has accelerated because president netanyahu was made at the united nations for recognizing, essentially, a palestinian state. that is a poke in the eye of the palestinians. it's also a poke in the eye, by the way, at the president of the united states, who has urged president netanyahu not to do that. it was very interesting yesterday. the pre

. the president has already discussed that with benjamin t netanyahu. it could even come up with the palestinian leader today. >> reporter: i'm sitting in jerusalem. so -- and ramallah is eight miles from here in jerusalem. when people talk about the possibility of chemical weapons being used in syria, it's not just about the regime versus the opposition, it's not just about the west. whether regime, jihadist groups have grabbed them, one of the big concerns -- you heard the president and prime minister talk about this yesterday. does syria's arsenal and weapons get in the hands of not just the opposition but hezbollah, hamas, other jihadist groups in this region? the word security takes on many different shapes, many different wrinkles. when you're meeting with the palestinian president it's normally about negotiations and security cooperations with israel. because of everything going on in this part of the world, it's a lot more complicated. and syria, including worries about the use of chemical weapons, you bet that would be a fkter as well. >> we're looking at live pictures of president obam
